Shaheda Lorgat Defendant snatched at court is wearing a burka, but has been positively identified

TRUSTED Shaheda Lorgat fraudulently ran up a £21,000 bill on her work credit card.
She’s facing a jail term after admitting a catalogue of offences while she worked as a purchasing officer at Blackburn College, Lancashire.
The card was supposed to be used buy equipment for students requiring special help.
But Lorgat, 42, used it on days out at Alton Towers, to pay for personal solicitors costs and prescription sunglasses.
She racked up a catalogue of expenses over a period of more than three years, Preston Crown Court heard.
She was suspended from her role at the college after an internal audit uncovered ‘financial discrepancies’.
